"there is no good reason to do so" meant that there is no good reason to set PYTHONUSERBASE to non existing path or a path that is not a directory.

The history behind this bug report is that I used a program that, because of a bug in this program, set PYTHONUSERBASE to a non existing path, and I wondered why "import cython" raised a ModuleNotFoundError even though I had installed cython.
